The Hermanuspietersfontein HPF 1855 Posmeester is a brilliant, medium brick red to purple colour and brandishes a bouquet infused with enticing and intriguing aromas of lavender, black olive, fynbos and cashew nut. On the medium-bodied palate there is a pure intensity with seamless tannins and a juicy texture. Balance flows through each lengthy sip, leading to a satisfyingly dry aftertaste. If you have the patience, you can cellar this wine for 5 years or longer. It is best paired with lightly spiced foods like Cape Malay bobotie, tomato-based pasta or pizza, barbecue spare ribs, bacon quiche, or spring rolls.
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, with possibility of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec
